Paris: Newcomer label Maiyet is built on the concept of a network of artisans spanning the globe. For their premier Spring showing, a sense of bohemian-inclined craftsmanship was palpable but for their first Fall collection, creative director Gabriella Zanzani took the line in a decidedly more sophisticated direction. Citing the contemporary Spanish architect Santiago Calatrava as a key source of inspiration, Zanzani showcase classic clean lines through navy and black blocked yokes that modernized tops and dresses, sharp plunging necklines and sleek slits. Meanwhile, the brand’s signature element of craftsmanship could be seen through delicate appliqué, intricate embroidery and clever material piecing. How Maiyet will evolve artistically and aesthetically is still to be determined, but the ideology behind the sustainable luxury brand will serve them will in a market crowded with an anything-goes ethos. —Shannon Davenport
